bullets or seeds

Bullets or seeds.

You can offer your ideas to others as bullets or seeds.

You can shoot them or sow them:

Hit people in the head with them or plant them in their hearts.

Ideas used as bullets will kill inspiration and neutralise motivation.

Used as seeds, they take root, grow, and become reality in the lives in which they are planted.


The only risk in the seed approach:

Once it grows and becomes a part of those in whom it is planted

You will probably get no credit for originating the idea.

But if you are willing to do without the credit….you will reap a rich harvest.
